Their energetic contentis still sufficient for composting or anaerobic digestion. Annual animal excrement productionin Slovak Republic is about 13 700 000 t what can be used for 1,03 TWhe(3,7.10</p><p>15 J) electricenergy and 2,8 PJt (2,8.10</p><p>15 J) heat energy production.

Temperature value of this anaerobic process was maintaining in mesophilic scalei.e. 37oC. As an anaerobic laboratory apparatus, semicontinuous reactor was used.

Results and discussions</p><p>3.1. Poultry manure waste kitchen oil anaerobic digestion</p><p>Aim of this experiment was monitoring biogas production and its composition at graduated</p><p>organic mass loading and also measuring of processing parameters that characterize anaerobicprocesses (pH, NH4+, VFA (volatile fat acids), Xc (dry mass content)). For anaerobic systems</p><p>these parameters are indical and change one of them cause change the other. Experiment wasrunning until system began be collapsing. Poultry manure and waste kitchen oil as a co-fermentation system was chosen.Co-digestion started with initial organic mass (VS) loading on the level 0.3 kg VS/m3/d andgradually was increased until final value 1.2 kg VS/m3/d. Feeding by manure and oil was atevery loading to constant VS ratio both substrates , it means 9:1. First 12 days organic massloading was 0.3 kg VS/m3/d, 13 23. day 0.5 VS/m3/d, 24 120. day 0.7 VS/m3/d, 121 143. day 1 VS/m3/d and finally 144 305 day 1.2 VS/m3/d. In generally anaerobic systemstabilization is long time process that take several weeks till months. It depends on many</p><p>factors ( intensity of organic mass loading, temperature and composition of input substrates).</p><p>Fig.1 Anaerobic process parameters time development (COD, VFA, NH4+)</p><p>Organic mass loading is mostly expressed two ways loading by volatile solids (VS) andloading by COD. Because different substrates has different organic mass composition, itmeans different COD related to 1 kg VS , better and for anaerobic processes more valuableparameter COD should be. Typical example studied co-digestion system poultry manure waste kitchen oil was. Chemical oxygen demand (COD) for poultry manure was 0.9 gCOD/kg VS, eventually 2340 COD/kg VS for waste kitchen oil (Tab. 3).Poultry manure was periodically taken from near farm and subsequently stored in fridge.Waste kitchen oil was taken from university canteen and also stored in fridge. Average storedtime for poultry manure was 2 3 weeks. If stored time overreached 3 weeks, manure starteddecompose. It was indicated by ammonia smell. If so particularly decomposed manure wasdosing, always unstability in anaerobic process was happened. As can be shown in Fig.1,every dosing of particularly decompose manure caused increasing COD, NH4</p><p>+ and VFA.</p><p>After 125th</p><p>co-digestion days stored time of manure was decreasing to 10 days.

For holding this valueexistence of acid basic buffer system is needed. In anaerobic system co-exist two basicbuffer system (ammoniac NH3 + H</p><p>+ NH4+ and carbonate CO3</p><p>2- + H+HCO3- ). However</p><p>if substrate with high total nitrogen content is digested (poultry manure), inhibition ofanaerobic processes can happen. For example if swine manure is digested, upper limit freeammonia value is 1,1 g NH3 N/l. Ammonia is generated from nitrogenous matters asproteins and urea [3].Free ammonia and NH4</p><p>+ are two main inorganic nitrogenous forms inaqueous solutions. Free ammonia toxicity is caused its freely membrane-permeability andconsequently causing proton imbalance or potassium deficiency [4]. From all anaerobic typesof microorganisms, the methanogens are the least tolerant and the most likely to cease growthdue to ammonia inhibition [5]. There are many different maximum free ammoniaconcentrations for methanogens on literatures. For example , as ammonia concentrations wereincreased in the range of 40515734 mg NH3N/l, acidogenic populations in the granularsludge were hardly affected while the methanogenic population lost 56.5% of its activity [6].</p><p>In our present work , after 175th</p><p>digestion day free ammonia inhibition started be significant,if concentration 4000 mg NH4+/l was overreached (Fig.1). According [11] free ammonia if</p><p>concentration of NH4+ is known can be counted as follows: pH = (TAN/(1+10(pKa pH)).</p><p>In 175th day pH = 8,4, pKa = 8,95 [11] a therefore concentration of free ammonia NH3 = 1130mg/l.</p><p>Fig.2 pH development during anaerobic digestion of poultry manure waste kitchen oil</p><p>7,4</p><p>7,6</p><p>7,8</p><p>8</p><p>8,2</p><p>8,4</p><p>8,6</p><p>8,8</p><p>0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350</p><p>time[ d ]</p><p>pH</p><p>37th International Conference of SSCHE</p><p>May 2428, 2010, Tatranske Matliare, Slovakia Po-Th-6, 113p.pdf </p><p>1402</p></li><li><p>7/29/2019 Anaerobic Co Digestion of Poultry Manure and Waste Kitchen Oil</p><p> 6/9</p><p>During treatment of waste containing high concentrations of TAN (total ammonia nitrogen),pH affects the growth of microorganisms as well as the composition of TAN [7]. Processinstability due to ammonia often results in volatile fatty acids (VFA) accumulation, whichagain leads to a decrease in pH and thereby declining concentration of free ammonia FA. Theinteraction between FA, VFAs and pH may lead to an inhibited steady state, a condition</p><p>where the process is running stably but with a lower methane yield [8]. In our presented workthis situation occurred after 175th co-digestion day, where pH value due to free ammoniastarted increase (Fig.2) and consequential rise of COD and VFA concentration (Fig.1).</p><p>Fig.3 Biogas production related to 1 kg added VS</p><p>This free ammonia inhibition caused decrease of biogas production (Fig.3). System waspseudo stable, it means that biogas production was stabilized and oscillated between 200 300 m</p><p>3/kg VS/d. However in comparison with biogas production before inhibition (before</p><p>175th day , 400 - 600 m3/kg VS/d) it was only 50 % yield (Fig.3). Toxic influent of freeammonia caused also decrease in methane content in biogas (Tab.4). Therefore the mostimportant if substrates with high nitrogenous matters are anaerobic digested (poultry manure)is decrease of free ammonia concentration. There are two main physicalchemical methodsto free ammonia removal, air stripping and chemical precipitation [9]. For ammoniaprecipitation magnesium ammonium phosphate can be used. Another posibility is dilution ofmanure to a total solid level of 0.53.0% . This approach is joined with economicunattractivity due to high waste volume [10].Various types of inhibition can be counteracted by increasing the biomass retention in thereactor. It was found that the methane yield in a CSTR could be increased by switching offthe stirrer half an hour before and after substrate addition [11]. Ammonia inhibition can bereduced using different types of inert material (clay, activated carbon, zeolite) or adding ofionic exchanger or adsorbants (natural zeolite, glauconite) [12]. Another parameter that canaffects to free ammonia concentration temperature is. As is known , higher temperature haspositive impact to microorganisms growth and metabolic rate, on the other side highertemperature leads to higher free ammonia concentration, thus to inhibition. Several authorshave found that anaerobic treatment of waste with high ammonia is less stable in thermophilicconditions in comparison with mesophilic digestion [13]. It was discovered that some ions as</p><p>Na+</p><p>, K+</p><p>, Ca2+</p><p>and K+</p><p>have anti inhibition effects, mainly joined with free ammoniainhibition.</p><p>0,00</p><p>200,00</p><p>400,00</p><p>600,00</p><p>800,00</p><p>1000,00</p><p>1200,00</p><p>0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350</p><p>time [ d ]</p><p>Biogas production [m3/ kg VS/ d]</p><p>37th International Conference of SSCHE</p><p>May 2428, 2010, Tatranske Matliare, Slovakia Po-Th-6, 113p.pdf </p><p>1403</p></li><li><p>7/29/2019 Anaerobic Co Digestion of Poultry Manure and Waste Kitchen Oil</p><p> 7/9</p><p>Tab.4 Biogas composition (poultry manure waste kitchen oil)Digestion</p><p>day14 22 34 41 57 71 83 91 111 127 147 165 187 210 235 251 270 294</p><p>Organic</p><p>mass</p><p>loading [kg</p><p>VS/m3/d]</p><p>0,3 0,5 0,7 0,7 0,7 0,7 0,7 0,7 0,7 1 1,2 1,2 1,2 1,2 1,2 1,2 1,2 1,2</p><p>componets Biogas composition</p><p>CH4</p><p>[%]60,4 56,6 53,9 45,2 70,7 58,8 55,8 57,8 56,2 55,5 52,3 51,4 52,4 50,3 49,8 50,1 46,4 48,3</p><p>CO2</p><p>[%]33,3 36,8 40,1 48,7 24,4 33 38,9 37,1 37,5 37,6 40,1 41,6 43,1 45,3 44,3 42,3 47,3 45,9</p><p>O2</p><p>[%]1,1 1,4 1,3 1,6 0,9 1,2 1 1 1,1 1 0,9 1,1 1,2 1,1 1 0,9 1,1 1,2</p><p>H2S</p><p>[ppm] 104 137 740 1210 515 169 806 455 1069 1152 1005 1054 1003 989 1052 1035 989 1105</p><p>H2</p><p>[ppm]165 42 55 51 85 100 80 80 68 80 95 101 125 114 131 145 167 195</p><p>4.0 Conclusions</p><p>1.
